If you’ve never flown before or you have flown a million times, you have to know that it’s important to be comfortable when you’re flying in the air. Just like being at home or at the office, it’s never fun to be sitting around feeling uncomfortable all the time. We’ve put together a little list on how you can feel great when you thousands of feet up in the air.
Reserve a great seat
When you first book your flight, try and get a seat near the aisle or near the front. If you can get the front row, this will be great for you because they offer a lot of leg room and it almost feels like you’re in first class for the coach price. The reason why you’ll want to get an aisle seat is because you’ll be able to stretch your legs every once in awhile in the aisle. If you’re near the window, it’s impossible to do so and you may find your legs cramping up. An aisle seat is great if you need to get up and use the bathroom as well.
Bring your entertainment
Nobody likes to fly for hours without any entertainment. When you fly, you usually can’t rely on the airline to carry great entertainment. This is why you should bring your own source of entertainment. It’s usually best to bring mp3 players, portable movie players, magazines, and other things that may keep you entertained to your liking.
Sit and Forget
The best thing you can do when flying is forgetting about the time. If you keep on checking your watch while you’re flying you’re going to notice that time is going by a lot slower. The best way to prevent this is to pick up your entertainment and forget the fact that you’re even flying. If you put yourself in another world, the trip will go by a lot faster.
Bring some snacks
Sometimes you may find that you get awfully hungry in the air and the airlines food is either disgusting looking or they charge you for a snack. If you pack what you like, you can simply eat it during your flight. Eating is not only comforting, it also makes time go by much faster and makes your stomach a little bit more on ease.
Earplugs are your friend
If you plan on taking a long flight, earplugs will be your best friend if you plan on sleeping or you don’t want to have your ears popping constantly. Ear plus usually make it a lot easier for people to relax since they don’t have the constant airplane and racket around them.
Earplugs can usually be purchased in stores for as little as one dollar.
There are so many ways to be comfortable on an airplane. You have to remember that you need to relax and make sure that you’re prepared for the flight. Entertainment and seat selection should be your number one priority. The next time you fly, you shouldn’t have to worry about being uncomfortable.
